  •  There's a reason Hamas always says.... (5+ / 0-)

    ....in these situations that the war is going gloriously fine.  They're apocalyptic nihilists, and they really do think violence even (especially!) to their own people is wonderful, purifying stuff.  I'm not sure how exactly you counter that if you're Israel, and it's not like I am hearing super-fantastic alternatives to what Israel actually is doing.  But keep 'em coming, maybe there will be something that floats my boat.

    •  The extremists on both sides love it (3+ / 0-)

      and the possibility that Israel's response may have been stepped up for campaign purposes can't be dismissed, not with Bibi calling the shots.

    •  Rich, see if this floats your boat. (0+ / 0-)

      Fight radical islam thru immigration policy--legally prevent radical islamists from entry to western countries.  No visas or immgration to USA, etc. As in why allow people to enter the USA who hate our country and way of life.  

      •  How about doing the same to the Israeli guys (0+ / 0-)

        doing the same from the other side. Or are they different somehow?

        •  Radical Israelis don't come here, they... (0+ / 0-)

          ...come FROM here. We don't need immigration controls, we need emigration controls!

      •  We don't have radical Islamists coming here. (0+ / 0-)

        Other countries can take care of themselves. But I don't think it would make any difference to the Middle East itself.
